My Birthday


Yeah! It’s my birthday.
I am grinning, my happy day.
As family and friends send wishes,
I know I am truly blessed.

Blessings from up above, I ask.
Anoint my head, O Lord.
Wishes and blessings I receive.
This day, my birth date.

Before I get carried away.
By celebrations and presents.
A Birthday Cake with candles, maybe.
A wish for me I share with you.

Birthday wishes, my birthday.
Of joy, happiness and laughter.
I share these with you, my friend.
How awesome a day, my day.

If none of the above happens,
I will still count myself blessed.
For this day in history I was born.
Two persons had already loved me.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
